We know we have some brides out there who don’t want their big day to be some huge fussy event, that is why we would like to dedicate this simple comforts wedding inspiration to you! Callie Pitts of Nancy Ray Photography and Simply Put Vintage dreamed up this gorgeous shoot that is sure to capture your heart considering how effortless, cozy, and comfortable it feels. Inspired by an intimate corner of a favorite restaurant the understated decor and rustic wine and cheese bar will leave you wanting to relax and stay a while.
From Simply Put Vintage:
This shoot was inspired by a small, quaint Italian restaurant downtown. What is extra special about this cozy corner restaurant is that it is the same building my great grandfather used to run his grocery store in. I incorporated organic elements, like the potted herbs, loaves of fresh bread, and European dough bowls overflowing with flowers, along with historical elements, such as the private historic Raleigh home, the vintage pews, and the old farm table. These images are a fusion of organic and historic qualities. Some of my favorite natural elements were the olive branch garlands lining the aisle and the flowers by Tre Bella that crawled up the side of the exposed wood framing.
The 1800’s farm table was full of antique white and gold china, wine glasses (red and white, of course!), mismatched flatware, and pretty little menus created by Victoria Austin Designs. I love how Tori of Victoria Austin Designs perfectly captured the feeling of this shoot in the invitation suite, too!
